Using terms like "unix-like" is not based on technology as much as it is trademark rights and inter-corporate money squabbles.

Of course, Linux is "unix-like" as so are all the various flavors of unix, they are "unix-like" as well, which is generally (something like) a pre-emptive multitasking kernel built on top of a C compiler where user-level applications are launched from "shells" which are wrappers on top of the operating system.

That worked for 30 years and still going ;-)
There are so many things in life , that arent "bad" because they are old,
acutally it's the reverse ... like wine ... ( the one we drink ;-) )
"Old" software ... upper versions, is called very often : "mature" , "very well known" ... trustworthy ...euh ... stable ?

Well, if is another "Linux distro" I say great! This could put a light to Unix/Linux. Google brand name recognition, could do the tric and besides I do not see many penguins advertizing on TV.

BTW, There was a President named Kennedy that said something like this "we do not do the things because they are easy, but because they are hard" (I do not know the exact quote...ok). That is why I got an old x86 Dell and installed Solaris 10 in it...do I know anything about UNIX? not much (maybe pwd, ls -l, ...) But why not learn it? I am a computer major and I think that all IT people should be exposed to UNIX/Linux at least once...

But, we dont because we do not recognize the product. Is it UNIX/Linux is not my friend, but my acquaintance?

I worry that, like a lot of other hyped up google products, it'll become a google thing and not a UNIX thing. Android uses Linux, but can you get to Linux in a useful way? Not particularly.

You can get to Android in a useful way.

It is simply a different model. In Android each application at the user level is Java and each each application runs under its own user id.

In the Android shell on the phone, many Linux commands work fine.

I really don't understand the FUD about Android. After all, it was only a few months ago, most all mobile phones ran only on completely proprietary OS. Now, their are open OS for mobiles and it is really up to phone manufactures to go with what works for them.

Plus, considering all this is still in its infancy, it makes no sense to toss darts at it. All these new classes of OS are evolving. I just bought the best mobile phone I have ever had. There is no doubt that my next phone will be even more powerful, full featured, etc.

Actually, my phone is "a work of art".... I look forward to Chrome on a tablet, but so far, nothing to report. I will, more-than-likely, buy a Samsung Galaxy Tab running Android 2.2 on or around Oct 22nd.

If that's Linux as I know it, then Windows is VMS.

Hooray, I can use cp. Now, what about anything important -- can one script calls, run real applications, do meaningful I/O, interact with the user, or alter any settings without the java garbage?

When a linux system has a tinkertoy SSH client, something's gone terribly wrong.
